The Island of Zanzibar lies just off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean. Besides the cultural diversity, the narrow strees of Stone Town, and timeless Dhows in the ocean, Zanzibar is all about relaxing... or not. It paradise - sunshine, white sands, crystal clear turquoise water that is warm with an abundance of activities for all age groups.
KARIBU – that’s welcome in Swahili, the language spoken by the local population in Zanzibar. It's hard to describe what lies ahead for you in Zanzibar - the narrow streets of Stone Town, eating a local meal of Mandhazi and Bharazi, a kind of sweet bread with pegeon pea coconut curry (a must have if you visit) - the ruins and old buildings and the smile on the faces of children on the streets.
Forodhani Gardens in Stone Town comes alive every evening with vendors firing up their grills to serve up any number of local dishes - the best part here is the view of the most beautiful sunset as the dhows sail by.
Zanzibar has some of the most stunning beaches in the world with some of the finest resorts for all budget types.
If you’re looking for an ultimate getaway from your hectic lifestyle, then Zanzibar will not disappoint you.
